It has been announced that Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) and ProSiebenSat1. Games (PSG) have jointly decided to migrate all PSG accounts for PlanetSide 2, DC Universe Online and EverQuest II back to SOE in the near future. Read the important FAQ and discussion thread here.
As of today’s date, region locks have been lifted. New EU residents wishing to register should do so via SOE hosted sites.
On or about July 1, 2014, SOE will offer PSG players the opportunity to migrate their existing accounts to SOE account management, in order to continue playing SOE games. All earned status, characters and in-game coin will transfer with your account.
However, payment details and personal information will not be transferred. When a transfer is initiated, only the PSG account name, character info, Seven Cash balance and other game-related data will be provided from PSG to SOE, exclusively for migration purposes. You will need an existing SOE Station account or create a new SOE account in order to continue playing the games through SOE’s service. You also have to refill your payment details if you wish to make new payments.
After the migration, EU players with their existing memberships will be automatically upgraded to SOE All Access Memberships. All EU residents will then have the opportunity to purchase these All Access Memberships at the same rate as the old, single-game memberships, and enjoy all SOE games as well as the monthly 500 Station Cash claim, marketplace discounts and many other promotions.
In even more exciting news, SOE Player Studio (for EQ II, EQ and PS2) is also expanding its scope to include submissions from EU Countries, starting with Germany, France, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the UK. The testing of these new tax registration is well underway!
